The Venezuelan crisis is, first of all, a humanitarian one triggered by the gradual collapse of the state, the GDP collapse amidst hyperinflation, the biggest humanitarian crisis of refugees and migrants in the region, and systematic violations of human rights. The Venezuelan humanitarian crisis has been aggravated by the pandemic -a crisis within a crisis. The seminars will analyze the current dimension of the humanitarian crisis in Venezuela and the international initiatives to advance in a comprehensive solution.
